5 Cafes to Visit in Nakano, Tokyo

Nakano is mostly famous because of Nakano Broadway (i.e. Otaku's heaven). There you can find a multitude of otaku goods, from vintage to rare. Nakano is also a nice place for students to hang out since there are nice parks and cafes and it has a laid-back atmosphere compared to some posh areas of Tokyo.

Feel free to follow favy!

Close to Nakano station, Good Morning Cafe serves every meal from breakfast to dinner.
It's very nice to sit on the terrace on a sunny day. We suggest the salad and the chiffon cake!
A lunch set is about ¥1,000 and dinner is around ¥1,000 for one dish; a cake set is ¥900.

This cafe is tucked away in Nakano Broadway, surrounded by interesting and bizarre shops catering mostly for otakus. But this welcoming cafe doubles as a an exhibition hall is a collaboration between artist Takashi Murakami and Fuglen (a small coffeeshop chain from Oslo). Hence the great and flavourful coffee and the beautiful art!

It is a very nice place to come to on the weekend, as they serve different kinds of tasty pancakes and it's right next to the park. Also, they have a nice self-serve salad bar and savoury dishes too.
Perfect for a Sunday brunch with a date or friends.

This cafe in Nogata is between Nogata and Numabuko on the Seibu Shinjuku line.
This place hidden gem is almost only frequented by locals, but is worth the detour. If you want the fluffiest chiffon cake you've ever had in your life, this is the place to go. Try it alongside the delicious Japanese drink "Royal Milk Tea."

I love traveling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
